Wet N’ Wild MegaLast Lip Color

This is basically our Magnum Opus of lipstick—it’s the one thing we absolutely MUST put on when we’ve got a cocktail party or black tie event. This 4-hour, longwearing lip color leaves a semi-matte cream finish in one stroke. Glides on easily with rich, velvety color that doesn’t cake, feather, or bleed. Made with hydrating skin-care ingredients: Hyaluronic Microspheres provide extraordinary adhesion to lips, an exclusive polymer complex offers cushion-like feel and texture, and natural marine plant extracts coenzyme Q10 and vitamins A & E help smooth lips. Via Wet N’ Wild Website.

I have 3 of these lip colors: Don’t Blink Pink, Think Pink, and Pinkerbell. I absolutely LOVE these colors. Most of them are a pretty pink and I get looks for having such a vibrant color on (I don’t care, girl has to have fun!) I love red lipsticks but even the red had a pink tone to it. This is definitely geared towards pink lipstick wearers. I am a sucker for lipsticks in general but hate ones that require too much maintenance. If I have to constantly check my teeth or reapply, it is not for me. The lipstick lasts throughout the day with minimal touching up. The price is pretty good too: ranging from 2 – 5 dollars. The finish is matte but it doesn’t feel like a matte. It feels more like a balm.

The downside, after a few hours, it does dry out your lips. It doesn’t become too cakey on your lips but you can totally tell your lips need a good dose of a deep mask. I recommend only wearing this if your lips are not already dry. If you suffer from chapped lips like I do during the winter months, you want to make sure you do not wear it on a chapped day. You’ll spend the next day peeling your lips.

My biggest gripe out of everything is that the caps come off really easily. Do not leave this floating around in your purse or bag. The cap will come off and get on EVERYTHING. I do have to dock this a point because of this.

All in all, I love these and would probably repurchase if I came across them again. I would love to see them extend their color choices because they have a decent formula with great color payoff. For the price, you cannot go wrong. Just remember the chapstick!!

Final Rating: 8/10

Arrival! Kylie Jenner Metal Matte in Reign First Impressions

Eeeeee I have been patiently waiting for the mail each day, hoping that this baby would arrive! After 2 weeks it finally came. The box it the typical black and white drip look. I have to say again, say what you want about Kylie but she sure knows how to make her stuff look sick. The box was quite big for my one order but was cushioned around some foam wrapping to prevent it from getting banged up.

The smell of the product smells a bit like a chocolate or buttercream but it’s not overwhelming like some of the products I’ve tried. The color is a coppery red. When applied, the color looks a bit more brown than red but I’m sure under fluorescent lights or outside, the red shines through. When I tested this out, it went on easily. I didn’t use primer or balm underneath. The product isn’t completely drying like some matte products out there. You definitely have to be careful as it doesn’t dry right away and even after 30 minutes, it sort of sits on your lips. Products that feel that way usually set into your lips and also work better with the right application underneath. You don’t need much of this to have a nice color or later. I’m mad I didn’t order the other two!! I definitely will be looking for the restock. This product seems to be worth the money.

ColourPop Haul Reviews and pictures! (Finally)

Here is my review for the ColourPop haul I did a while back. It sure took me forever to sit down and actually wear these all! I thought I was going to pick a color a day and have the review in a week and a half but boy, was I wrong! I never realized how much I worry about my lipstick going with my outfit! Here are most of the colors I bought. I will probably review the rest eventually. I found the ones that I really like so I will need to get sick of those first 😛 If you have tried any of these or other colors, please let me know!!


Lumiere 2- This has to be my favorite one out of the bunch. This is a true matte formula. When you first apply it, you have to make sure you keep your mouth open for a minute or so so that the corners of your mouth can dry. This came off a tiny bit when I would drink something but it rarely deteriorated the actual product on my lips. The color is darker than what the tube looks like. For as long lasting as the formula is..it comes off with a wet rag which is a total plus! When I tested this out the first time, I only moisturized but didn’t prime. I definitely recommend priming as well because it avoids those nasty cracks. You do have to be wary after eating a big meal as the inner lining of your lips fades. A touch up should do.

Lumiere 2 Ultra Matte Lip

Shimmy – I didn’t care for this one. The color was nice but my face is super pale and it just washed me out. Maybe I’m just used to vibrant colors. I didn’t prime but did moisturize. As with the others, this wiped off after scrubbing but left a tint to my lips. It looked and felt very cakey on my lips. This is the matte of nightmares, where it feels like it is sucking whatever moisture is left off of your lips. Even when I did prime and moisturize, the product filled into the cracks of my lips right away. I wouldn’t purchase this again.

Last Call is a créme. It looks and feels a bit like a gloss when it’s on. The color is faint but just enough with my casual outfit. The smell is a bit gross. I used the primer underneath and my nose keeps getting wafts of pure vanilla frosting. The Last Call is just an off vanilla smell. I don’t care for it and is something I don’t think I want to smell everyday.  It’s like a vanilla protein shake. I don’t think I will purchase this again.

Plastics is a matte purple/wine color. I love the color! The downside, it’s a bit on the moveable side. It doesn’t easily stay on your lips. I also found that it took forever to get a consistent color throughout my lips because it kept moving as I was applying. Halfway through my meal, you could completely tell it was coming off. While the lasting power sucked, I still am going to continue to use this and might even consider purchasing until I find a replacement color.

Jingle is a Matte. I really didn’t care for it in the first hour I wore it. When it goes on, it looks and feels more like a cream lipstick. The color is a bright red and when applying, you have to go over your lips a few times as the product moves and doesn’t always cover everything. Everything you eat or drink will receive red on it. After an hour, it started sticking to my lips like a matte usually does. Once the product finally set, it was a joy to walk around with it. I didn’t have to worry about running my tongue on my teeth to get any access red. I find I like this red more than some of the others that I have tried and will eventually review. I do recommend this. It lasted most of the day with only minimal touching up after lunch. I would purchase again.

Some honorable mentions. They didn’t leave much impression but I would not purchase for the lastablilty of both.

Kylie Jenner Metal Matte Lipstick

So I have a confession. Even with the knowledge that there are dupes out there, I’ve wanted the Kylie Jenner products for awhile. I’ve pined from a far because I couldn’t part with the 20-30 plus dollars for one item. I know that they are overpriced but I need it. That girl for sure has a great marketing team because even as an Advertising major, I’m being suckered into her limited “restocks”, flashy photos and promotions. 

With that being said, I just scored Reign, the Ruddy copper Metallic lipstick!!! This is cheaper than the actual lipkit and sold fast as expected. You really have to spend your day waiting on these babies to go on sale and have a caffeine burst while purchasing or you won’t be fast enough. The tip? Follow Kylielipkitukdates on Instagram or pay to have her app. They will post the day of or a day or two before.

I can’t wait to review this for you! Also, the long awaiting ColourPop reviews will be posted this weekend. Finally made it through some of the products and took pictures of each. Stay tuned!
